A new type of light pulses timer allowing a direct locking within the electric oscillation delivered by a clock is presented. The light pulses to be timed cross an electro-optic crystal excited by an oscillating electric field, which modifies the light polarization. A polarimetry at the crystal exit allows deducing the light pulse arrival time. Accuracy in the picosecond range has been experimentally demonstrated
